The Book of Common Prayer is the old and well-loved prayer book of the Anglican Church, in use since the 16th century. In this revised 1662 form, it has also become one of the classic texts of the English language, its prayers and expressions making English what it is today.
This edition of the Prayer Book has been freshly typeset for the 21st century, using a modern digital typeface to give a clear printing image and greater readability. Nevertheless, the format and page layout follow the previous version of the Standard Edition Prayer Book (originally produced in the early 20th century) page for page. The book provides the complete 1662 services---including the traditional forms of the baptism and marriage services. 8 pt. font.
